My needs have changed:

 I am selling this Lago Blue 1991 200TQW purchased by me in February 2004.  This is a nice solid car that needs little to be just about perfect.  I would have no hesitation to keep it (my original intent) but my needs have changed.  I have put a few thousand miles on it without a hitch... and the odo now reads around 132K miles.  The price is $6500 and I'm not real excited about negotiating, but you can try.  I'll make no apologies for the price or description as this is an HONEST description.  	
	I do NOT have any new pictures of the car, but the condition is unchanged since my purchase (cleaner, actually). 
	Here's an HONEST and full description:
It looks very, very nice, but the clearcoat on the driver's door and the fender is "weak."  The finish is duller than the rest of the car.  If I were to keep it, I'd probably have it wet sanded
and re-shot with clearcoat.

Only one thing that's really an issue: The steering rack should probably be replaced.

There's a very, very, very small hole in the rear resonator which is interesting because the entire exhaust is in good shape (I'd weld it for $10, but even an inspection may not detect it).

I'd probably change the timing belt since I don't know when it was last done.

I'm not getting any sound out of the front speakers but the former owner put in what is an incorrect BOSE head unit and it wouldn't surprise me if it's just not hooked up correctly. 

Personally, I'd be done with it and spend a buck and a half on something from Crutchfield.  That is
what I was going to do.  I may also be able to throw in the CORRECT Delta unit if anyone would want that.

There is -small- amount of oil leaking from the valve cover gasket.

The front brakes are G60's.

The wheels are about as nice looking as you will find, and have NOT been refinished.

The oil pressure needle fluctuates on occassion... it's the guage... not the pressure...I assure
you.  I think this is a common and easy one shot solder job.  I might be inclined to fix this this weekend.

The leather is in extremely good shape, but not absolutely perfect.  There are some scuffs on the back of the rear seat (in the hatch area so not really that noticeable).

Otherwise the car is ALL there....shifts smooth, pulls hard, handles nicely.... pulls 1.8 bar.  My wife really likes the car because she says it is "much smoother" than my gray one.  It is not chipped and seems like an "unmolested" ride.

It's a NICE car, that needs very little to be SUPER... 
Comments I've received from other Audi folks have been very positive.

I've had the car just long enough I think to discover even the little issues so while it might seem
that there's a few pain in the a@@ issues you won't get a more honest description of a used car.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested as I will advertise to the general
public soon....

Please write or call with any questions, phone number furnished on request.
